like ohio. but they think this is a changing moment. i read one interview anecdotally about ann romney saying the first thing mitt romney does when he gets in these debate is he walks on stage, he puts the watch on the podium. he where is on the piece of paper, dad, because of his dad george romney also ran for president. then he finds ann romney in the crowd. and i think that that -- we'll be watching for that. how governor romney handles the first minutes of his persona tonight will make a big statement about how this whole thing goes. bill: thank you, bret, we'll see you later tonight. bret baier live in denver. 8:55 eastern. you know it's important now. jamie: important enough to stay up. bill: full reaction tomorrow morning right here. jamie: republicans are now seizing on a comment by joe biden on middle class americans. the vice president was trying to fire up a crowd in the swing state of north carolina and many critics say he ended up committing his latest gaffe. you watch and decide. this is deadly earnest, man. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the

. certainly get ready to hear those debates. thanks so much. >>> ann romney has been a pretty constant presence on the campaign trail. now she's opening up about a big concern. >> i think my biggest concern, obviously, would just be for the -- his mental well-being. i have all the confidence in the world in his ability, in his decisiveness, in his leadership skills, in his understanding of the economy, in his understanding of what's missing right now in the economy, peeies that are missing to get this jump started. i think for me it would be the emotional part of it. >> by the way, mitt romney is 65 years old. he would be the second-oldest president in the past 150 years. >>> a consultant for congressman todd akin is comparing him to cult leader david koresh from the waco, texas, incident. this week akin refused to drop out of the missouri senate race. he came under fire for comments he made saying that women can biological prevent pregnancy after a rape. consultant kelly ann conaway told the washington watch weekly that akin was successful in his holdout. >> the first day or two, it w

, the president. and ann romney was on with greta and as she takes a look at the last four years for women, what did she see? it's something different than miss cutter. >> the biggest difference, and it's the women that come up to me in the campaign trail. i will tell you four years ago, women that would speak to me had a lot of different concerns on their mind. this time around it is nearly universal that they're talking about jobs, the economy, their future, and they're talking about debt and entitlement and everything that is so critical that we make sure that we get a hold on this economy or we're going to see ourselves facing the kind of crisis if we don't address some of these things. >> steve: one of the poor things for the president coming up, there is a brand-new business round table report coming out where they poll ceo's and asked, how is the last quarter? they she had bleak. as for hiring in the future, they say there will definitely be job cuts in the next six months. so from the business round table, not look good. >> brian: not good for defense. david cameron needs a life line. >>
. by the way, ann romney yesterday did an interview where she talked a little about mitt's, what does he when he takes the stage. as soon as he gets up on stage, he takes off his watch and he puts it on the podium and then on a piece of paper, he writes dad. she says that's amazing because he loves his dad, respects his dad, doesn't want to do anything that would not make his father proud. i love the fact that mitt does that, so he writes that word, dad. he'll do that tonight on that stage. >> brian: i remember the question he was asked, what would your father do, now that you got the nomination? he said be bold. so if he wants to take that, that's really the philosophy he should bring in tonight's. >> martha: good point. he also says he looks into the crowd to make eye contact with her and to see where she is and to sort of have a moment of connection, which i think everyone has things that sort of ground them and help them to relax and be focused and it was interesting to get a little insight into what their ritual is. we'll see how that works out tonight's. and also we've got several new p
? is ann romney there? are their children there? >> both candidates' wives will be here. but not yet. the first lady, sort of funny, the president has been having his debate prep in nevada. the first lady is holding a campaign event in nevada. but they're at separate locations and will be flying to denver separately and meeting up here for the first time. she'll see him before the debate, but it is hardly, i think, the kind of date any couple would want for their 20th wedding anniversary. she did say she expects to -- he'll make it up to her at another time. >> i guess a presidential debate is a pretty decent excuse. jessica yellin for us in denver. jessica, we'll look for you later. thank you so much. >>> cnn's live coverage of tonight's debate begins at 7:00 eastern. >>> call it the debate before the debate. we're about to show you what each candidate will probably say tonight in his own words. i'm brooke baldwin. the news is now. >>> the woman who battled mitt romney ten years ago joins me live on how their debate gave romney a major boost. >>> plus -- >> middle class has been bur
knows who he is for the most part, sending ann romney talking about his health care plan in massachusetts and how that covered more people that not, can he change the way people look at him? >> i don't know. i think it really depends on the debate and what happens in the debate will depend on how president obama performs against him and how he comes after him. i think the president's very lucky to have the unemployment numbers come out next week, after that first debate, rather than this week, before the debate, because that would give him an opening. we've seen these debates take unusual turns in the past. president ford liberated poland when he was debating, you'll remember, and jimmy carter, he talked about nuclear policy with amy and ronald reagan looked and said there you go again, and it changed it for ronald reagan. >> let's talk about that fight night. a lot of commentators think of because where romney is it's a make-or-break moment for him. i love to hear all the commentators fall over themselves to compliment each other for once on the campaign trail. you had m

. [indiscernible] i think ann romney was quoted the other day about the criticism that her husband is getting. i got a lot of the males -- emails on our blog varying from good for her to "doesn't she get it?" or "imagine if michelle obama said that." it was probably not something that the campaign wanted as a structure of a statement. she was talking about her husband and talking about seeing her husband. the responses that you chose to run for office. what we demand of our candidates is a lot. even for the criticism that he is getting about not doing enough in terms of events, he is doing a tremendous number of fund-raising, having a discussion about whether we should do other things. it is incredibly hard and incredibly grueling. it is impressive that they don't make more mistakes and off-cue moments. i can't imagine watching my husband go through that. my husband being very protective of me when they are critical. >> my family loves reading by criticism. why do you get so upset about it? thinkingthat they are it. i will say that ann romney is feisty. i love what she did because it is so he a
